In 2012 the town installed a NEOS System near the playground at Harmony Park, which is a state-of-the-art outdoor gaming system designed to get kids and adults outside and exercising.  NEOS is a fun, interactive electronic game that offers a creative alternative to today’s traditional at-home gaming systems. There are three components to the NEOS System:

  • NEOS Wall
  • NEOS 360
  • NEOS Ring

The NEOS System includes one or two-player competitions (two-player option can be played as teams with multiple players) while entertaining participants with visual, spatial, physical, auditory and musical challenges. Each NEOS game lasts approximately one minute and promotes physical activity the entire game. Correct responses are rewarded with sounds, lights and reward points, which provides a healthy compensation that draws on competitive instincts. NEOS gaming options include:NEOS Playground System

  • Light Grabber
  • Light Thief
  • Bubble Burst
  • Road Block
  • Snake
  • Goalie
  • Dance With Me
  • Echo
  • Music Machine

The NEOS System operates from dawn to dusk. A printable version of the NEOS User Guide is available online.

NEOS System Warning: It is dangerous to climb on any component of the NEOS System or use NEOS in any unintended manner. Please help us keep the NEOS System working for many years to come!
